Federal lawsuit hangs over Eves, LePage as private citizens

Paul LePage and Mark Eves are now both private citizens, but a federal lawsuit over a dispute from their time in office is still pending.

The litigation dates back to 2015, when Eves was the House speaker and LePage was in his second term as governor. Eves accused LePage of abusing his office to prevent a private school from hiring him. The subsequent legal battle has been a test of the power of Maine’s chief executive.

And it is still going, as the parties wait for a ruling on the latest appeal. The case is the last one pending in federal court in which the former governor is a named party. Now the court must decide if the end of LePage’s tenure should also bring an end to this lawsuit – and its related legal bills for the state.

LePage’s lawyer has said the claims against him are no longer open for argument because his term is over.

2. You're welcome.

I thought that the article might interest some people considering how long Maine had to tolerate LePage.
